Kangana Ranaut: After rendering us jobless, they are celebrating National Unemployment Day
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut on Thursday said that the demolished office has rendered many people jobless as a film employs “several hundred” people. Kangana’s tweet came just a few days after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) demolished part of her office.
The 33-year-old actor took to Twitter to share pictures from the demolished parts of her Mumbai’s Pali Hill-based production office and penned down how the ones who rendered so many people jobless are now celebrating the “#NationalUnemploymentDay17Sept.”
Kangana wrote, “They transformed my workplace into a cremation ground, rendered so many people jobless, a film unit employs several hundred people,” she tweeted in Hindi.
“When a film is released in employs the theatre workers and the popcorn sellers. After rendering all of us jobless, they are celebrating the #NationalUnemploymentDay17Sept today,” her tweet further read.
Kangana’s statement comes after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s attack on the Central government over the issue of unemployment. He claimed that “massive unemployment has forced the youth to call today National Unemployment Day.”
The actress came under fire on Twitter today after she said that she felt she was almost “raped” when the Shiv Sena barged into her office space and demolished it and called actor Urmila Matondkar a “soft porn star”.
On Thursday, netizens started trending #ShutUpKangana for her insensitive and derogatory remarks. One user wrote, “Yes Nepotism is bad. But this woman is dangerous to Feminism as well. Don’t let this lady be the face of Feminism and defame it. She is just a hypocrite and opportunist, forget Nationalist.”
Apart from fans, some people from Bollywood also stood in solidarity with Urmila. Actor Swara Bhasker tweeted words of appreciation for Urmila and wrote, “Dear @UrmilaMatondkar ji, remembering ur outstanding performances in Masoom, Chamatkaar, Rangeela, Judaai, Daud, Satya, Bhoot, Kaun, Jungle, Pyaar Tuney Kya Kiya, Tehzeeb, Pinjar, Ek Hasina Thi.. among others and have marveled at your acting chops & brilliant dancing! Love u.”
